Westrade Group is delighted to report back on the success of its Trenchless Middle East (‘TME’) event recently held in Dubai. This biennial event really has become the business hub for all those immersed in the Middle Eastern trenchless industry.
Exhibitors and sponsors once again remarked on the calibre of delegates and visitors attending TME. Sales were brisk and plenty of future potential business opportunities were reported on from all sectors of the exhibition floor. The success of the event is surely testament to the understanding that Westrade has of the trenchless industry and explains why the event organisers maintain their status as world-leading experts on the subject.
A real highlight of the show was the Keynote Address delivered by Dr Sabih Khisaf, Head of Engineering MENA Region, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies. This space-age project, whilst still in its infancy, will very much morph into reality and provoked lots of discussion and debate amongst the delegates. So successful was the talk that Dr Khisaf kindly agreed to come back and deliver it again to the student party.
For the second time, TME featured a Student Programme in its agenda. A record 130 (double the number from the previous event) trenchless technologists of the future, gathered to marvel at the very best the industry has to offer and whet their appetite at future job prospects.
Paul Harwood, Managing Director of Westrade Group, comments: “It was a fascinating event with a hugely dynamic atmosphere and we were delighted to have with us Jari Kaukonen, Chairman of International Society for Trenchless Technology. A special mention must also go to the German STT for creating such an innovative and impressive pavilion where they shared with us all the latest and greatest innovations from Germany. A superb event was capped off with the announcement that plans are afoot to launch a UAE Society for trenchless technology.”
Don’t forget that you can already start planning for the 12th Trenchless Middle East 2021 which will once again take place at the Jumeirah Beach Conference and Exhibition Centre in Dubai. Dates to be announced in the very near future.
